A woman was furious at being told to f*** off after politely asking two rag and bone men to clean up the ‘huge poo’ left on her front lawn by their horse Thursday morning.

Lesley Sitchett, of Gerda Road, New Eltham, said she witnessed the animal offload onto her lawn and was subsequently ‘given the finger’ by the youths.

Mrs Sitchett claims the police were unresponsive upon telling them about the incident which left her with excrement outside her house.

The 58-year-old said: “It was so big you’d need a bin bag to pick up that mess!”

“What bothers me is that the council come down so hard on us dog owners and I always pick up after my little springer spaniel so why do they get away with it and we don’t?”

Mrs Sitchett, who works with children, said rag and bone men would often ride up and down the road where she lives and has never had any problem with them in the past.

“We grew up with rag and bone men and have never had a problem with them at all but I just can’t believe what those two boys did. We had a lovely old gent who used to ride up and down his streets and would always pick up after his horse so why can’t they do the same?”
